I am about to set up a dual/triple boot system on a 750gig macbook pro and was wanting to know my options in regards to file sharing options between the operating systems--primarily to share my music library.
The macbook pro comes with OS X 10.7.4 (Lion), and I was wanting to put Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 on the the HD. I mainly use Linux and Windows; I was only keeping the pre-installed OS X since I have 750gigs and I may find a use for it later. Also, bootcamp looks like it will make things easier with windows.
I have 150gig of music files that I want to share between the OS's. How should I organise the three OS's and the 150gig of files on the HD (and maybe some room for expansion or other smaller files? Should I create 4 partitions, one for each OS and one for the files and then connect them all somehow, or put the files on one of the OS's partition and then connect to them there? What are the benefits of each method and are there any other solutions for what I want to do?
Any advice on how to perform any suggested structures would be appreciated.
